So long as the male is definitely a het albino, the offspring are at least 50% het albino. Though unlikely, it is possible that both parents are het albino. Depending on the quality/integrity of the source of the adults, it's also possible that neither are het albino.
The easiest way (though not always practical) to determine if an unknown animal is het for a trait is simply to breed it to a homogeneous animal. There are many ways you could handle the labeling of them if you are intending to sell them, from simply calling them 50% hets, spelling out the actual factors involved, or just selling them as normals. 50% het wildtype KSBs are rarely produced, and when they are, they usually sell for standard wildtype prices, so there isn't any financial incentive in any of the above methods of labeling them. (Though a 10 animal lot of 50% het albinos will likely sell more quickly than 10 non-possible hets.)
Hope this helps cover the bases of what you were looking for. And sorry if I rambled on with things you care about.
Good luck with them. First clutches are always exciting times, especially unexpected sand boas.
